We have a lot to be thankful for, and when someone goes out of their way to show you kindness, provide you with hospitality, or give you a gift it is always nice to send them a heartfelt note to show your appreciation.
It may seem more convenient to just send a text, but writing a card is scientifically proven to be a more thoughtful means of communication. Our study with Oxford University anthropologist Dr Anna Machin showed that 66% of people said a personalized card made them feel happy and closer to each other. So we came up with a list of 50+ thank you messages, ranging from simple to sentimental, to make your Thank You card wording perfect.
Reflect the generosity and effort someone has put into picking you the perfect gift by writing an equally thoughtful thank you card. Whatever the reason for the present, we have a simple, heartfelt and/or funny message for you to use.
